Liam asked this same question about 6 months ago, my answer is China Cat Sunflower/I Know You Rider:

Like a First Growth Bordeaux, the song was "accessible" but too youthful and tannic early in its life (1968-1971).

China Cat, and particularly the segue into Rider started "opening up" in 1972.

By 1973 the song has evolved and blossomed into a jazzy masterpiece.

Like a mature First Growth Bordeaux, the song has aged gracefully. Some of the "fruit" may have faded away over the years, but there are still some fantastic old "bottles" around in 1979 and beyond(?)...

Better question might be which shows have seemed to have improved with aging?

I like how Jack Straw turned into a rockin glass of Kansas Barley malt and how Sugeree Phased into a nice Dark Rum on ice through the years.

The biggest song that aged into even the 90's, is cassidy. Hands down.

"AM I WRONG? AM I WRONG?"
-Walter Sobchak



those who say 5/9/77 had the best cassidy are out of their noggins :]

I have a hard time with Bests but I would definatly agree that Cassidy is another song that changed nicely.
